Farm Profile

his case study shows how a Clare melon farm is reducing energy costs thanks to the energy savings program.  The farms has reduced the energy cost for cold rooms and packing shed by 10 – 15% off their annual $250,000 bill.  Further savings are being made with irrigation efficiencies.

An Energy Audit recommended 3 main groups of projects: refrigeration, irrigation and pump laser alignments. Refrigeration system improvements are reducing annual costs by nearly $10,000 with a payback just over three years. The first of a number of pumps to be laser aligned is saving $5,500 annually and similar improvements are being found with pump refurbishments and variable speed controls.
